Hello. Avid watchers of Weather For The Week Ahead

0:00:030:00:05

will know in recent days we've been talking about the upcoming arrival

0:00:050:00:08

of perhaps colder easterly winds. But, what do you know?

0:00:080:00:10

Some of the computer models have thrown a bit of a googly

0:00:100:00:12

and we might have to wait a little bit longer for those easterlies

0:00:120:00:15

to come our way, as I'll show you in a moment.

0:00:150:00:17

It's been chilly enough in recent days with this flow

0:00:170:00:20

of Atlantic westerlies coming into the UK.

0:00:200:00:22

For some during Thursday, there was a bit more snow to be had.

0:00:220:00:25

Hills of northwest England, Northern Ireland,

0:00:250:00:28

heavy snow showers into northwest Scotland,

0:00:280:00:30

whereas for many in the UK,

0:00:300:00:31

there was a return of some welcome sunshine,

0:00:310:00:33

and will be around again during Friday.

0:00:330:00:36

In fact, most places on Friday will be fine and dry.

0:00:360:00:39

There's a flow of air from the Atlantic,

0:00:390:00:41

but with high pressure bulging in from the south,

0:00:410:00:43

it does leave northwest Scotland on Friday

0:00:430:00:45

with further heavy snow showers.

0:00:450:00:47

Quite tricky over the higher routes, particularly during

0:00:470:00:50

the first part of the day, quite icy.

0:00:500:00:52

Icy too into Northern Ireland. Cloud will increase

0:00:520:00:54

to western areas as we go on through the day,

0:00:540:00:56

leaving the best of the afternoon's sunny spells

0:00:560:00:58

in the east, and after, a widespread frost to begin with.

0:00:580:01:01

Temperatures top out at around 7-10 Celsius.

0:01:010:01:04

Now, as we look at things

0:01:040:01:06

through Friday night and into Saturday,

0:01:060:01:08

this weather system just runs across northern parts of the UK.

0:01:080:01:11

A bit of rain, sleet and a bit of hill snow to be had.

0:01:110:01:13

Petering out during Saturday morning and we're left -

0:01:130:01:16

for northern England, Scotland, Northern Ireland -

0:01:160:01:18

with a scattering of showers, wintry on the hills.

0:01:180:01:20

Dry across southern parts here

0:01:200:01:22

with probably the best of the sunny spells.

0:01:220:01:24

The temperatures pretty similar. Still some just nudging

0:01:240:01:27

into double figures.

0:01:270:01:29

Saturday night and into Sunday,

0:01:290:01:31

another weak weather system working on through,

0:01:310:01:33

another one just edging towards the west later in the day.

0:01:330:01:36

That's a recipe for a bit more cloud

0:01:360:01:38

for part two of the weekend on Sunday,

0:01:380:01:40

to the north and west of the UK in particular.

0:01:400:01:42

It may be a bit damp and drizzly underneath that.

0:01:420:01:45

You see the land here,

0:01:450:01:46

the green land here towards the southeast.

0:01:460:01:48

That does mean probably still some sunny spells

0:01:480:01:50

to be had here.

0:01:500:01:52

There are a few more of us getting into double figures -

0:01:520:01:54

11 degrees in Belfast, for example, on Sunday.

0:01:540:01:56

Going into the start of next week,

0:01:560:01:58

it is a really quiet weather pattern across the UK.

0:01:580:02:01

So nothing happening very quickly,

0:02:010:02:03

but we're left with a lot of cloud on Monday.

0:02:030:02:06

Sunshine much harder to come by.

0:02:060:02:08

It's misty, there's hill fog around and it's still damp

0:02:080:02:11

and drizzly in some spots as well.

0:02:110:02:12

But it's a different feel out there. 10 degrees in Stornoway

0:02:120:02:16

and Aberdeen, so more of us getting into double figures.

0:02:160:02:20

And it looks like more of us, by Tuesday, with this quiet

0:02:200:02:23

weather pattern will actually start to see a bit more

0:02:230:02:25

in the way of sunshine, although by Tuesday,

0:02:250:02:27

temperatures may just come down a degree or so once again.

0:02:270:02:30

So a quiet start to next week.

0:02:300:02:32

It's beyond this stage, going deeper into next week

0:02:320:02:36

we were thinking high pressure would set up near Scandinavia

0:02:360:02:38

easterly winds could come in and they'd be quite cold,

0:02:380:02:40

but look at this. This is one possible suggestion

0:02:400:02:42

for the end of next week.

0:02:420:02:44

Low pressure, a deep area of low pressure

0:02:440:02:46

towards the northwest of the UK, wet windy weather coming in

0:02:460:02:49

with the Atlantic very much still in charge of our weather

0:02:490:02:52

with quite a mild flow, quite strong winds, particularly

0:02:520:02:56

across southern parts. No sign of that cold easterly wind.

0:02:560:03:00

So what does that mean for our weather next week?

0:03:000:03:03

Well, we've established that the half of the week,

0:03:030:03:07

pretty sure it'll be fairly quiet and milder.

0:03:070:03:09

Then there's that possibility, but it's far from set in stone,

0:03:090:03:11

that we'll see something wetter and windier for a time,

0:03:110:03:14

delaying the arrival of perhaps colder easterlies.

0:03:140:03:16

If this doesn't happen, and it yet may not,

0:03:160:03:18

then the easterlies may well come in at the end of next week.

0:03:180:03:21

You can see there's still a lot to play for,

0:03:210:03:24

but when it comes to those easterly winds,

0:03:240:03:26

it's still a case of when rather than if.
